Refrigerator Berry Pie goes together in minutes. You can use your favorite berries in this cool summertime treat!
Everyone has a pie recipe they remember their mom making when they were a child that still makes your mouth water when you are grown. In my case, my mom made a strawberry pie which combined dozens of fresh strawberries and a delicious sweet glaze in a flaky crust.
Growing up, I didn’t get this pie at any of my friends’ houses when I visited, so I assumed my mom was the only one who knew how to make it. As such, I figured it had to be a complicated pie to make because we only got it once in a while (I mean, if it was easy, wouldn’t mom make it all the time???) Good news is, I now know I was very wrong about that.
This refrigerator berry pie is actually a very easy pie to make, and it is also very adjustable to meet all of your favorite berry needs. There is no need to purchase the pre-made “strawberry pie topping” or filling that you can find at your grocery store. If you have 20 minutes, you can whip this up, throw it in the fridge to cool, and have it ready to treat your family after a nice Al Fresco dinner, or wow your friends at your next group picnic.
The refrigerator berry pie recipe is the same one that my mom used 40+ years ago to impress us kids — all I have done is add some blueberries to make it a little more festive as we approach the 4th of July holiday. It also allows me to take advantage of my favorite berries.
Because you can use any flavor Jell-O you might find in the store for the glaze, you can use pretty much any kind of berry that suits your tastes. Just don’t let your kids know how easy this is to make, or they will be asking for it every weekend!
